During the day this family-run store operates as a delicatessen and restaurant, but from 4:30pm on it transforms into a chill, laid-back spot for drinks. An impressive selection of wines is available, but Oasis della Birra (Beer Oasis) specializes in, you guessed it, beer. Italian and international brands (including six pages dedicated to Belgian names) as well as around a dozen on tap options make ordering here a delightfully dizzying task.

Simone Mina’s concept was to create an imaginary museum of liquids in this hidden space located on the second floor of Checchino dal 1887, a restaurant that has been around for 130+ years. Taking inspiration from his family and the surrounding neighborhood of Testaccio, Ch1887 combines food and cocktail culture, by experimenting with flavors and ingredients that can be found in traditional Roman dishes.

Caffè Tevere is an old local institution, popular with young local people all day long for coffee breaks, tramezzini and so on, but it really fills up and flourishes at aperitivo time. It is the perfect place to have a cheap drink, but above all to socialise, mingle and get into the real heart of Roman evening life.
